Security Feature Planning for JDK 7

Posted by mullan on August 25, 2006 at 9:41 AM PDT

In a recent blog of my colleague Andreas Sterbenz, he asks the Java community for input on the security features for JDK 7. Specifically, he writes:

Let us know your suggestions for features in the security area including topics such as crypto, PKI, SSL, Kerberos, security manager + policy, authorization + JAAS, SASL, XML security, secure coding, performance, ease of use and administration, and everything else related to security. Or if you don't have a specific suggestion but find that there are some things that really annoy you or that you cannot do, we want to hear about that us well.

So I am posing the same question on my blog. Feel free to send your suggestions as comments on my or Andreas blog or directly to me at, and together we'll collect all the feedback. As Andreas mentions, due to our limited resources, we will not be able to accomodate all requests. And of course, all Java SE platform features are subject to JCP approval.

Thanks for your feedback!
